Granted, there arent a whole lot of highlights to this show. But the one thing that tickles me is at the end of Lazy River when Jerry comments "Go ahead and pass all the unconscious up to the front here. We'll prop 'em up somewhere, stack 'em like logs. We're not doing this for fun you know. God!" Even if you weren't there, it helps you put things into perspective. Fat man rocks!

I would grab another one, unless you are a glutton for punishment. I might listen to a few of yours, but
that C. Miller 73 is calling my soul.

Im a doctor, not a lobster Proctolgist dammit...

EDIT~ skipping through it, its about a C- (average 95). Race is On and the Dew are really good considering. The China> Rider is a lil rushed and 95ish: Started with good
intentions Im sure but ended up a phone call (IMHO).
If Jerry was turned up, now 'THAT would be something'

When I was at the gig i was angry. Lazy sets horrible playing. Felt ripped off but as time passed and had access to this site and listening again i felt more sad than angry. Listening to Jerry struggle through half step and butcher the lyrics to china cat is tough. The 115 degree heat isn't help matters

I was at all three of these shows, the 05-21 show was the best by a long shot...I remember this show for it being the last time I've ever ingested shrooms and for the pretty decent morning dew...the first night was awful, the Althea is the worst version of anything I saw them do live...the Sunday night gig I did by myself and had the incredible fortune of getting myself about ten feet away from a small group of gorgeous showgirls, a couple of which decided to go topless for a time...

The post drumz portion of the 2nd set was featured on GDH #383 back in the day. Have always really liked it.

so the question is did you put the ear buds in
(neighbors would not want to hear that),the mouth ball gag on, create a safety word and listen to it?
I know this is WAY too late. At least you got over the denial phase before the angry and sad stuff came.

So lets get onto some positive GD...

Easily one of the best shows of 1995. After two clunkers, I really enjoyed this show...it's not as evident on the recordings but Garcia's guitar sounded great live that day...clear and loud...Ramble On Rose, Tom Thumb's Blues and So Many Roads deserve mention as being excellent "best of era" versions..Jack Straw and West LA are delivered tight and well played...Samson got the crowd dancing, but when they started up Unbroken Chain a huge cheer went through the crowd like a giant wave...Eyes of the World has a great ensemble feel, Corrinna is one of the best versions out there, the post Corrinna jam is very cool...Spanish Jam materializes out of Space...and transitions into Other One...Days Between and Sugar Magnolia end the show in style...I remember taking my time to leave after the show and a spontaneous drum circle breaks out in the infield of the stadium, this event security chick who's next to me gets on her walkie-talkie and says "Uh-Oh they're playing drums"...hilarious...5 for 1995 shows, 3 in the grand sceme of things overall...I'll give it a 4, because I'm a dick and to thrwart the haters.. it is worth a listen...

gonna tool through this 95 and the Carter Beaufords drumz session, just as an appetizer before the 74 main course.
Talk about uh-oh, they're playin drums
